Bill,

You've described the first candidate since Bill Clinton who can deal with congressional gridlock. Moving the country "forward," will take skillful "tacking" - just like a boat sailing into the wind. Clinton mastered the art of "triangulation." Romney can sketch consensus with any of these old (and young) coots - of almost any political stripe. He's taken the same position as most of them at one time or another - and knows how to acknowledge their POV with respect.

Unlike Obama, Mitt Romney doesn't mind scheduling meetings and making phone calls to individual legislators and power brokers on both sides of the aisle. He doesn't insist on being the center of attention or expect others to bow to his will.

The country desperately needs a leader to drive consensus and to do deals. Bob Woodward's book makes it very clear: Obama ain't that kind of leader. Obama just doesn't do deals.

Genuine respect (rather than condescension or even contempt) for your colleagues and adversaries is something Romney is able to project.

Some may call political "tacking" or "triangulation" the art of the "flip flop." Hey, whatever you call it, the country needs some in order to avoid 4 more years of zero progress.

Etch-a-Sketch forward.
